In Love with Larkspur

The pale blues and royal purples of Larkspur are among the prettiest around. Also available in a summery hues like white, red and yellow, this cheerful flower symbolizes an open heart and ardent attachment. Which, combined with their charming aspect, makes the Larkspur (or Delphinium) a sweet addition to a summer wedding.

Baseball Wedding Inspiration

Take me out to the ball game…

Cracker Jack, a day in the sun enjoying the distant thwack of a bat on a ball, the game, and conversation between plays...baseball is one of the best things about summer!

Imagine how fun a wedding with a baseball theme would be? Unless you’re weaving a specific team into your day, red, white and a touch of blue are a charming palette that references the sport and the country in which it was born. As far as the details, there’s all sorts of wonderful ways to go: Cracker Jack favors, an outdoor reception (maybe even on a baseball field!), pennant garlands, tickets as escort cards, a baseball bat guest book, red velvet cake and wedge Converse sneakers for the bride.

Lea-Ann Belter Bride Rewind {Greta + Edward}

Back in 2011, when we originally shared Greta and Edward’s wedding day, the story of how she found her gown totally charmed us. And it still does….

On a bright June day in Cambridge, Greta and Edward were wed at Peterhouse Chapel at the University of Cambridge, where they are both post-graduate students.

For years, Greta had walked by Premiere Couture with her sister. While admiring the dresses in the windows, they promised each other that when one of them became engaged, they’d go there together.

Going to the Dogs

Back when the Greeks anointed this time of year as the dog days of summer, it was because the hottest part of the year just happened to coincide with Sirius, the Dog Star, rising with the sun.

We’re quite sure our furry friends have nothing to do with the sultriest days of the season (other than being the perfect companions for days spent outdoors). But, thanks to the Ancient Greeks, we’ve got the perfect excuse to share a few of our favorite wedding pooches!

Wedgwood Wedding Inspiration

When Josiah Wedgwood opened his pottery in 1759, do you think he knew his work would endure all the way into the 21st century? We’re betting not, but he might have had an inkling. After all, British Queen consort Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz became so impressed with his earthenware that she allowed him to call it ‘Queen’s Ware’, making Wedgwood a household name.
